    1 second of whining with gear change auto & manual

    Strange times on SatNav routing

    Service - any known fixes to ask for?

    @cuke2u - I can see the option in the MMI and even adjust the volume of the warning. But it doesn't work if I leave a USB connected phone in the car. I have a friend with an A3 and it works OK in that with the same settings. I've seen more suggestions that the A4 only works if you have a Qi...

    Strange Noise

    I've been plagued by a strange whine from the car. Mostly when it's cold at low speed. It sounds like a pump or motor running. Sometimes it runs for a second and other times it runs for a minute. It only happens when its cold. I found a US forum post that has the same symptom. Has anyone in...
